Howdy, I have a question about replacing the metal tab on the rear brake arm.
I don't have a manual so I don't know the actual name of it, I'll do my best to describe it and it's function:
The spring loaded metal tab that initiates the brake light...the rear brake pedal is stepped on and the metal tab behind the brake pedal arm pops up...or the spring is able to unload, pushing the small metal tab off it's seated position...which then causes the brake light to turn on. As best I can figure and understand.
In any case, that metal tab and spring disappeared in some Idaho mud a few miles back and the issues caused thus far are as follows:
1. The brake light doesn't turn on when you step on the brake.
2. You can't use cruise control because of the error message.
3. A constant warning triangle and error message regarding a faulty brake system turns on every time you ride and the triangle w exclamation mark stays on all the time.
Does anyone know how to get a replacement tab and spring? Part numbers and where to purchase online?
They seem flimsy, is there a better option out there? More durable, less prone to getting pulled off in heavy mud?
